Question about Airlink (AWLH4130) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

No WEP capabilities...

For some reason, my AWLH4130 will connect to networks which have no WEP just fine, but if I try to connect to any network secured with WEP, it can't connect, and doesn't give me any reason why. I'm sure all the configuration is correct, because I have a laptop connected to the network. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I am in the same situation as some of the other comments I have seen. I am able to locate and input the encryption key to my local wireless network. It shows that it is connecting to the network but in the end it never truly does connect. I erase the profile and try it again with the airlink radio as well as the windows wireless and it is the same thing. Nothing happens. Just give it the priority message but wont connect. Any solutions?

WEP encryption is not very safe and will be less in use in the future. Anyway, you have to determine, if WEP 64 bit or WEP 128 bit is used (26 digits), mostly it is set to 128 bit.
If the connection fails, try to input the key with WZC (Windows Zero Configuration) instead via the interface-software from the manufacturer. If the service WZC is started (important!), you have a tab in the properties of the adapter to make the configuration with conf.less win connection, you only have to put in the right key.

Enable wireless capability

Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

Where is the wep key located on my virgin router

Connect your desktop computer to your Belkin router, and access the router's built-in web-server software. Then, run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure the router's wireless networking capabilities. As part of that process, you will be required to _create_ a "WEP-key" value. Use that value when configuring the wireless capability of your PS3.

What is a ssid and a wep key. I am dumb.

SSID is the wireless networks name you want to access.

WEP is a special hexadecimal key to secure your network means if you want to connect a wireless network you will have to put this key.
It will be provided by the admin

My itouch won't connect to my wireless network

This happened to me as well. Turned out the iPod touch doesn't support WEP encryption properly, and sometimes can't log onto those networks.

If your network is WEP-encrypted, try changing it to WPA.

Pc doesnt connect wirelessy but liks with hard wire

It is a clear cut issue of security but dont worry
First of all the wep key is a 10 digit no if 64 bit wep or 26 bits if it is 128 bit wep.
You have to enter the numbers not any passphrase that you entered in your router
Now I assume that you know how to go to the router set up page by entering your default gateway address in the address bar.
Now change the channell to 6 or 11 which will give you the best signal strenght .
Now the main reason it is not connecting is because you have not deleated the preffered networks.
So the network name identified by your computer dosent have a network key so it misinterprets and cannot detect and also after setting security signal drops so changeing channell is very important.
On your wireless PC go to wireless network connections -- properties -- deleate the preffered networks ----- press ok---- Refresh network list ---- click your network ---click connect ---- enter security key (numbers please) ---- connect .
For your e71 do the same .deleate preffered networks and reconnect .
This should help and if there is any problem do let me know .

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network

Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.
